That ref also went on to judge Froch-Kessler and failed to give Froch any of the first 10 rounds, if I recall. He's clearly a Sauerland favourite.
Let's keep the Kessler fight out of it. Froch has conceded defeat (finally), the punch stats showed that Kessler landed about 150 punches to Froch's 90, all three judges scored it for Kessler... and on and on... so let us not pretend 1 judge had anything to do with anything.
